Are You Missing This Piece to Enhance Student Learning? | Lifelong learning | Scoop.it

If you have worked in any educational environment from elementary school, higher education, or corporate training, then you have had students who consistently struggle with a topic, skill, or prerequisite knowledge that they must learn in order to be successful. Likewise, many of those same students struggle to motivate themselves to learn the material they are struggling with.Traditionally, we have relied on more passive forms of resources (i.e. textbooks, journals, news articles, videos,

One of the critical decisions you have to make when developing an elearning module is the length of the course.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 2, 9:34 AM

These thinking routines can help teachers move toward teaching processes for learning rather than content alone.  In the era of ever increasing knowledge, we need to help students learn how to learn.

 

That being said, these routines can also be used as a model for teachers by using them as options for professional development,

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 15, 3:17 PM

Has your role as a teacher shifted? Do you model being a learner with your learners? This post by Jackie Gerstein shares why it is important that the educator "needs to understand and be able to articulate and demonstrate the process of learning, him or herself."

How can you go about doing this. Gerstein recommends that "educators pick something new to learn and practice doing the following: (below quoted from the post)

  1. Explicitly state and record the metacognitive process while learning.
  2. Demonstrate and articulate the actual steps of learning.
  3. Record the stages of artifact development.
  4. Understand and embrace the iterative process of learning.
  5. Use and demonstrate the self-evaluative reflection process.

Gerstein then discusses each of these five steps/procedures/strategies, providing links to additional resources as well as one additional visual as well as a video that looks at how the learning process is iterative (and may provide you with an idea you would like to do with your class).

If we want to build expert learners...we need to take the time to model this ourselves.

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, February 19, 11:34 AM

The "Sage on the Stage" model must give way to the "Guide on the Side". Concurrently the teacher must model the learners mentality of facilitator of learning.

Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.
